I left Texas in the dust today on my way to Blissdom. Those are my drinks and snacks up there. Sorry about the silence in here, but there’s only so much blogging that can get done while you are packing the back end of your vehicle so tight that you can’t slip a piece of paper between the suitcases, hanging clothes, or boxes that touch the padded top of the vehicle. And eating lunch out of the back of your truck. And keeping the baby happy by singing endless rounds of “The Wheels on the Bus”.
While I was busy stuffing my things in the SUV, my sponsor, Springpad was cooking up a super awesome give-away for me to help them with at the conference. They are offering one Blissdom attendee a 100$ gift certificate to the Container Store! Talk about an organizing dream come true?!
I have been getting to know my Springpad account and have found that it is really a handy tool. I used the grocery list the other day to check off things on my list as I shopped, and tonight I used it to remember a site I wanted to go back to later. The site has a Blissdom page that contains a ton of links for Blissdom attendees about Nashville, the hotel, and all things social-media. It’s a ‘free online personal organizer’. Why don’t you give it a try?
